LPG consumers allege harassment by distributors 
Our Correspondent

Nawanshahr, August 4
The LPG consumers who have neither received their Aadhaar cards by post nor got these generated from the UIDAI website are a harried lot.

The grace period for linking LPG connections with the Aadhaar card-linked bank accounts for obtaining the benefit of the direct benefit transfer scheme of the LPG subsidy into their accounts, is going to expire on August 31.

" The LPG distributors are not entertaining the EID slips against their LPG connections for booking cylinders and demand Aadhaar cards," rued the LPG consumers.

It is worthwhile to mention here that the district has been selected among the 20 districts in the country for providing direct benefit transfer of LPG subsidy into the Aadhaar-linked bank accounts of the LPG consumers. From September 1, the LPG consumers would get the subsidy on LPG transferred directly into their Aadhaar-linked bank accounts. Deputy Commissioner, Tanu Kashyap has launched a comprehensive campaign to ensure that all the LPG consumers have their Aadhaar-linked bank accounts by August 31. A special camp would be organised here at Baradari Garden on August 7 where LPG distributors would collect the requisite copies of the bank accounts and Aadhaar cards from LPG consumers. The facility of opening bank accounts would also be made available at the camp for the convenience of the LPG consumers.

The LPG Consumers, who are yet to receive their Aadhaar card, have urged the Deputy Commissioner, to take up the issue with the concerned UIDAI authorities. Otherwise, the EID slips should be entertained for booking LPG cylinders as well as transfer of subsidy into their bank accounts under direct transfer benefit scheme till the receipt of the Aadhaar card, as they have the valid proof that they have applied for the Aadhaar cards.
